We've been around for over three decades, so we're a stable development studio with plenty of experienced folk on board already. If you're a games industry vet, you'll probably enjoy working with equally experienced people, and if you're relatively new to the scene, there's a wealth of talent here to learn from! Either way, we're all passionate about games and game development, and we're hunting for some like-minded people to join us!

We have an office nestled in the Melbourne CBD, close to public transport, and with parking available. Our current team enjoys flexible working arrangements, including work-from-home days, or flexible hours - so a successful candidate will be able to mostly set their own schedule.
